Dr. Mercola posted an interview with Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride today, who shares the techniques that she used to recover her son from autism. Dr. Campbell-McBride shares her insights about Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS), which can make a child vulnerable to vaccine damage and the GAPS nutritional program which can help treat autism, allergies, depression, etc.. Her website here. And a transcript of the interview is here.
There’s so much wisdom and great information on her website and within the interview that I wanted to share it. Basically talking about the science behind leaky gut syndrome and how autism, allergies, depression, etc. can be helped by healing the gut through the GAPS nutritional program (i.e., fermented and cultured foods, probiotics, etc.). As far as I can tell, it’s very similar to the Body Ecology diet, which is what Gina Laverde used to recover her autistic son.
It’s another reminder for me to start introducing fermented foods in Moses (and our diet). I’m just so intimidated about starting it. I need to find a culture starter, which I could buy from the Body Ecology website, but I want to find out if I can get it locally first. I need to find a container to do it in. I’m thinking that if I write about it, I might be motivated to start it… I know that Keely’s Kitchen is following the Body Ecology diet, and she recently posted about her favourite cultured vegetable recipe here.
I’d love to hear any tips / advice that you may have about fermenting your own foods.
